The Glitches of Christmas!

Saturday, December 25, 2010

Slept in a little, went to the gym, and then the stress began, my man leaves debit card at home and can't reach me cuz I'm working out for a couple hours. I was told dinner was at 5, but I guess they changed it to 3, my family from the states say they'll call me on skype at 2...I get ready drive over to Earl's moms and get computer up and talk to a friend in Aussie on Skype...and then it stops working...I try with my iphone, but that doesnt last, and finally I use a phone card! My plate breaks in 1/2 and all over the table, my man backs his car into a tree, and I fall down some stairs!!! SERIOUSLY! LOL And neither of us drink! Man....now pain pills, heatpad, and hopefully I can still workout tomorrow...Last day of Bootcamp!!

I hope everyone had a less eventful Christmas!!!! LOL
Good Night!~

    We were having issues with getting Skype to work here in the states too. I think just too many people were trying to get on it. Hope the heating pad works! Feel Better Soon

Those were the words out of an 11 year old's mouth today when she saw my "lack of tummy!"...LOL

I always say a compliment from a man is nice.

A compliment from a gay man is even better (It's true and they don't want to get into your pants)

But a compliment from a child....PRICELESS!!! (honesty without a buffer!!!)

Pampered Patty = Happy Patty :)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

It's been a rough couple days for me as most know from my previous blogs...

Today I am blogging early in the day as I sit here at my Hair Spa getting my every 5 week Platinum touch up done and cut. I love being pampered and I don't think most people do it enough for themselves. Women take care of so many other people and put others first and Oprah has taught me in the last 38 years that you have to do things that fill you up and make your soul happy.

I am a hairdresser, Image consultant, makeup artist, beauty therapist, personal trainer, weight loss consultant, nail tech, and soon Nutritionist....I sit and listen to people and help them...that weighs on me sometimes. I want everyone to be happy, healthy and feel on top of the world!!! I believe a bit of pampering NEEDS to be part of every woman's life!!! For your body, skin, soul, and special time!!! It puts a pep in my step, makes me feel stronger when I walk out the door everyday...a great cut, perfect skin care, and the right colours are worth the investment!!!!

My grandfather always taught me that you should never skimp on your teeth and your shoes....I will add...or yourself!!!! My hair gets done every 5 weeks and it's $205.....HOWEVER....I rarely pay that amount because I am stopped at least twice a day and complimented on my hair...they get a card from me to bring here and they get $20 off their first visit and I get $20 off for the referral!!! PLUS...it makes my day!!!! :) HA HA Within my 5 weeks away...usually 3 have come in :)

There is a saying I firmly believe in now...heard it about 10 years ago... IF YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN A COMPLIMENT ON YOUR HAIR IN 6 WEEKS, CHANGE IT NOW!!!!!

I went dark a couple times, and the comments I got were "Oh...you changed your hair"....yea....that's a comment...NOT a compliment...and I didn't give out any cards! LOL Went back to this style and colour and gave out 5 that following day!!!!!! REAFFIRMED!!!! LOL

It's funny....my hair has become part of my identity...and even my man's...we get our hair done and share hair product!!! It shows our personalities and when people describe us, that's the first thing they start with...even over me being American!!! The Blonde American who wears Makeup and from Chicago! That's me! :) PROUD OF IT ALL!

So....I challenge all of you to do something nice for yourself on a regular basis! It may be buying a really cool bath bomb and enjoying it with some music...it may be a manicure, or massage....but do something! YOU DESERVE IT!

hate the weather - Really wish Christmas would be over and I could get back to work and normal life. Missing my friends and my grandparents who've passed....a warm Christmas is wrong and there's no friends and family here for me, so...I'm having a wee pity party tonight and a wee cry. This is NOT my normal self and hate it when I get this way...just gets to me. Sorry the whining...I try to get at least 100 points a day and needed the blog! LOL

    It's hard having holidays when people we love aren't here to be merry with us. I celebrate the winter solstice and my grandmother died 4 years ago exactly today. I miss her everyday, but especially today. I try to stay cheerful and mostly do my best to look positive during these holiday times, even though sometimes I'm feeling quite sad inside. At least life will be back to normal soon! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

And thank you for the goodie on my page. I love goodies. emoticon

UGH!

I have never been a fan of Summer! I HATE it! Most people lose weight in summer and gain in winter...I am the opposite! It's too hot, I get headaches, I'm tired, and I don't feel like cooking or going anywhere. It's been over 90 degrees here the last couple of days and it sucks! OKAY...there's my whining...

I still exercised...does anyone have the problem of having huge boobs and your shoulders hurt after exercise from the weight in your sports bra pulling down on your shoulders? The last 2 days I am really hurting...think I need to schedule some acupuncture time. He always makes me feel better! My boobs don't shrink either! forever a 34G! As is Good Lord! Just curious if anyone has found a solution for this issue! LOL I'm all boobs...oops I mean ears!

Food was fine, exercise was fine, and I found out that my goal of getting on the Top 10 Users at my gym list is gonna be interesting...but they offer a prize for number 1!!! Usually $150 and flowers. The top person last month had 40 visits! So far the top has 20 and I have 14!!!! That's not too bad!!! I think I will attempt this challenge in January/February!!! 2 times a day...should be insane and interesting! I am a prize and recognition whore so I want on that list and number 1 would be even better! She said usually those people come in the morning and do cardio and then come at night and do weights....sounds reasonable...LOL....I'm game!!!

Well, I have moved furniture around today. lots of serious cleaning and now need to put some pressies together for my clients!

OH I ALMOST FORGOT!! I have had these adidas shorts for about 6 years but haven't fit in them in over 4...so I gave them to my man...today I reclaimed them...THEY FIT!!!! WHOO HOO!!!!

    ahhh! the boobs! (it is hilarious that you call them Good Lord, cause that is what I called my Gs! Now I have D's. But I found that the sports bra makes all the difference. The best support I found is from a cupped adidas sports bra with a tight band and a normal 'uniboob' sports bra on top. Good Luck!

    Congratz on fitting into the shorts! I love that feeling. Also, I totally understand what you mean about liking the trophies and prizes. They are my best motivation too. Sparkpeople is great for that! emoticon
